Southern Serenade is a beautiful stamp set with some great sentiments. The large flower stamp shows Fireweed, a flower that grows wild all around Anchorage, where we lived for eight years. The flowers are a vibrant dark pink, very much like the Berry Burst I used on this card. The lower Fireweed blossoms started opening at the beginning of summer, soon after the snow melted. When the top flowers opened, we knew summer was over and it was time for snow again.

The Stamparatus makes stamping easy and it opens up lots of fun techniques! I used it to make a wreath. It’s really easy! If you pre-ordered your Stamparatus, you either have it now or it’s on the way. If you didn’t get to pre-order, they will be available in the new annual catalog that goes live June 1st.

I posted a similar project at the beginning of February. That was for a swap where we just made card fronts. I shared this card at a recent Paper Play Day and we made the full card. The Stamparatus sure helps on the three-step stamping! And that placement works great for getting the square cut just right on the two layers of the card front. Easy peasy!

This bunny is so sweet I think I just want to cuddle it! The Sweet Little Someone stamp set is a 3-Step stamp with near photographic detail. I stamped it in soft browns, but you could also go pink, blue, purple, or whatever color you want.

I was on the Leaders to Leaders (L2L) team. We gave input in planning the Stamparatus. One reward was to get this wonderful new tool early. I used mine to make 26 “Swaps” for a local Stampin’ Up! team event. It positions the image precisely and it’s great for making multiple projects!

I show a way to cut the window with nearly the same precision. I also show a clever way to punch a little framed label with with Everyday Label Punch. In the video, I show how to do it but I said I would not use the frame for the label… but I did. It was that easy.
